Receptionist very rude over the phone when she called to confirm appointment for my child. I understand English but couldn’t understand her accent so I had to ask her to repeat herself and she did so with such an attitude very unprofessional. This was my second visit with my son to the doctor so I wanted to give it another chance but again I felt like rushed like a customer. He didn’t explain my son’s medical conditions and instead told me to go visit a hospital and ask for a pediatric urologist. Didn’t ask me if I had any questions or concerns and even if I did he didn’t seem helpful. It was such a short visit, in and out an on to the next customer because that’s how it felt like a customer not a patient

He was available at time that my regular urologist was away, but I felt like a "customer" someone to be dealt with and summarily disposed of, not very pleasant. His expertise is good, but his patient interpersonal skills are lacking.

I was able to receive Dr. Shtainer on the weekend and avoid going to the ER. His staff is very professional and the facility has all modern technology. He made a diagnosis the same visit and was able to treat me. I highly recommend this practice.

Although there was a slight wait, the Dr. was very attentive, was able to understand my problem, and was very thorough in explaining my options for treatment. I heard he was one of the best urology surgeons, so I found him and made the appointment.

New York, NY – Sep 20, 2016
Doctor didn't explain the medical condition, or what kind of medication he is prescribing and didn't even answer the questions and concerns i had with my child's medical condition. The whole visit with the doctor took 5 minutes including ultrasound and the amount of time it took him to send electronic prescription to my pharmacy. The last words from the doctor were you can go now.
